Property Value

Integer number of characters

This is the number of characters that can be typed, not the number that can be displayed. If you enter text by setting the Text property for a cell, this property does not limit those characters, only what can be typed by a user when in edit mode.

This example sets the maximum character length for the cell.
FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType txt = new FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType();
txt.MaxLength = 25;
fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].CellType = txt;
fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Cells[0, 0].Text = "This is a text cell.";
fpSpread1.Sheets[0].Columns[0].Width = 200;
Dim txt As New FarPoint.Win.Spread.CellType.TextCellType()
txt.MaxLength = 25
FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).CellType = txt
FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Cells(0, 0).Text = "This is a text cell."
FpSpread1.Sheets(0).Columns(0).Width = 200
